Surely, the important thing is that they've been caught and justice will be served. Don't see the point in arguing over how 'Muslim' or not they are; its more a cultural issue that needs to be stamped out.
(Original post by A Mysterious Lord)
This is a cultural issue in a particular community, not a religious issue.
I wouldn't impute this to any particular presupposed "community", just like I wouldn't consider the behaviours of British child exploiters in Thailand, Cambodia, the Philippines, etc. to be a "cultural issue in [the British] community".
These are limited groups of people whose behaviours do not reflect on other people who may share some of their benign attributes (ethnic origin, musical interests, clothing styles, etc.). Their particular cultural (or individual) values that predicate these crimes should be seen as separate from the wider population.
